The Jacksonville Jaguars will be hiring Denver Broncos special teams coordinator Joe DeCamillis for the same role in Jacksonville, according to a report by Mike Klis. DeCamillis will take over for the much maligned Mike Mallory, who was the special teams coordinator during Gus Bradley’s tenure, a consistent issue with the team.

If DeCamillis’ name sounds familiar, it’s because he’s been the special teams coordinator for the Jaguars previously. Under Jack Del Rio for the 2007 and 2008 season he ran the special teams unit.
DeCamillis, who also served as the interim head coach for the Broncos when Gary Kubiak was dealing with health issues, is a long time well respected special teams coach in the NFL. He’s spent seasons with the Atlanta Falcons, Dallas Cowboys, New York Giants and Chicago Bears. He’s also someone that’s gotten hype as a future potential head coach.
Special teams was an area that needed drastic improvement for the Jaguars and they’re off to the right start bringing in DeCamillis.
